New Delhi, March 5: The use of money in elections is a matter of concern, the Election Commission said Wednesday, adding that it will take steps to curb it in the April-May Lok Sabha polls.

"The use of money power is a matter of concern," Chief Election Commissioner V.S. Sampath told the media.

He said special emphasis was being given to "check the use and flow of money during the (coming) election process".

He said the poll panel will deploy flying squads and video surveillance teams among other measures to stop the possible use of money by candidates aimed at influencing voters.
